One thing is for sure: Artists Ashley Buchanan and Loring Taoka have a sense of humor (pictured above holding containers of powder coating color,) and we couldn’t be more excited to host them this spring for a trifecta of events:
May 9th 5:30-6:30pm – Meet-a-Maker Artist Lecture with Loring Taoka and Ashley Buchanan;
May 9th-10th – Trunk Show featuring their newest jewelry lines;
May 10th-11th -?Makin’ It Pop?- a jewelry making, color on metal two day workshop.?
Below Artist Loring Taoka answers some questions about his artwork and Ashley Buchanan shows us some technical process shots from her studio.?
1) How would you describe your medium?
I pick materials based on how well I think they will translate my ideas–if it doesn’t accomplish what I want it to, I try something else. This leaves a lot of room to experiment and gives me the ability to question and think through what I’m doing.
Below are some photos of Ashley working in her studio, the same processes that will be taught in the weekend workshop!!!
